Wanted: prettier Logo


I’m sorry that is a bit late, but I have been *really* busy with work, despite doing my best to get it closer to being complete whenever I have some free time. Just last night, I managed to make the code completion algorithm able to recursively fetch inherited or aliased members from the symbols tree, which, for me, was quite a nice breakthrough, if you ask me. :) Now, if only my hand-made minimalistic code parser was running decently… but it will soon, trust me.

Now, more to the point. As you probably already noticed in the video and screenshots, this is the stand-in logo I’ve been using for


Well, it’s very much inspired by the old simple logos for the D language that I have seen a few years ago during D1 development, and thought it would be nice. What I’m wondering is, maybe I could use something a bit more trendy and modern. Something more in line with the logos most IDEs today have. If it could have some degree of consistency with the Tango icon library, even better.

I’m accepting suggestions (preferably in the form of 256x256 png files ;). The best proposal would replace this logo and the author would be given full credit, of course. Oh, and those involved might get to test early ;). If you’re interested, please send your proposals here.

Any questions or suggestions regarding the actual program, features, and status are welcome in comments section. Or by email too, why not.
